Anthroposophical Cosmetics

A treatment for the skin to recover its internal balance naturally.

What does life mean?

Rudolf Steiner answered it like this: "Study the rhythms of Nature, because the rhythm is a carrier of life."

Fully respecting the rhythms of nature, at Botica Floral we use the same procedure of exposing the plant or flower to the rhythms of Nature (light – darkness, movement – ​​rest, cold – heat). Thus obtaining the maximum vitality of the plant in its medicinal extracts. The medicinal plants that we include in our cosmetics are produced in biodynamic agriculture and are harvested manually. But above all the vegetable extracts are macerated according to the natural rhythms (they receive light and darkness, movement and rest, heat and cold). These rhythms, which reflect the processes of the plant in its natural state, increase its vital force. In addition, the extracts are macerated, instead of in alcohol, in spring water, with which they gain subtlety and are impregnated with the force of the spring itself. Thus, these products are able to offer the skin the information it needs to recover its internal balance naturally. They do not treat external symptoms only, as they are designed to address the root cause of each disorder. Anthroposophical cosmetics offers a comprehensive treatment.

In anthroposophical cosmetics the threefolding of the human being is considered in perfect correlation with the threefolding of the plant, under these principles of action the plants and flowers indicated for each process are chosen.

Integration movements that awaken the healing forces of plants and flowers :

Dynamization (empowerment)

Dynamization consists of diluting a prepared substance (in general, a mother tincture) in a suitable medium, and impressing this dilution with a rhythmic movement for a certain time. This rhythmic agitation is very important. Through it, the force (energy) of the substances that thus communicate or impregnate the solvent medium is released. According to the degree of dynamization, the preparation is directed to one or another element of the human organization.


metallic procedures

Metals play an essential role in Anthroposophic therapy. Alchemists recognized its therapeutic importance. As in other natural kingdoms, the therapeutic use of metals stems from their close evolutionary relationship with humans.

vegetated metals

The original metallic substance is dynamized by a particular plant that has relations with the being of that metal. In this way, a dynamization of the metal is obtained that is superior to what would be obtained in a laboratory, because it is introduced into a vital realm, which can then be transferred in a direct relationship with pathology in the human organism.

Mineral compositions with the model of plants

Anthroposophical pharmacology develops a new concept that consists of the transposition of the properties of the being of a medicinal plant (the dynamics that it sets in motion) to the substantial plane, and therefore, to a mineral composition. According to Rudolf Steiner's indications, these substances act on certain ailments with more vigor and in a more sustained way than the corresponding plants, thus they are ideal for chronic situations.

Quality from nature

From nature to man.

The ingredients of Anthroposophical cosmetics represent an unmistakable quality.

Valuable vegetable oils: almond, avocado and jojoba. Natural waxes such as bees, candelilla or roses. Medicinal plants that take care of the skin such as calendula, chamomile or lavender. Natural essential oils such as lavender, rose or lemon. All of this is just some of the ingredients that we use to make our cosmetics and they come from organic or biodynamic crops.

Fair trade is essential for good quality. Constantly producing natural cosmetics of the highest quality and available at any time is a great challenge. Renewable raw materials require planning provision and rigorous quality control.

The varieties of medicinal plants come from biodynamic farms, from controlled organic farming or from selected wild collections and are strictly controlled for their quality.
